A simple plan against the Stonewall system!

Young, inexperienced players often have problems in closed positions, because in positions where pawn chains dominate, you have to know the plans exactly. When I was already a strong grandmaster, I was always a bit afraid of Stonewall positions in the Dutch. But one day my friend Aleksander Beliavsky took me aside and showed me a new idea for White: exchange the bishop on f4 to open the g-file (gxf4) and double the rooks there. Black will defend his weaknesses on this file with all his might. Since White has space advantage, he now moves his pieces to the other wing and creates new weaknesses there - and the opponent is helpless. Beliavsky's brilliant game against Artur Jussupov is a fantastically instructive example of this great plan.
